the numbers are all driven by entitlements. you can make enormous progress on defense. you can make enormous progress on non-defense discretionary and in the end with you vil a enormous debt problem. unless you take on entitlements you don't solve the problem. in the end voters want you to solve the problem. republicans need to stick to their guns on that front. tracy: i hope they do because we're not talking enough about it. douglas holtz-eakin, thanks for taking time to be with us. >> thank you. >> we're not talking enough about it. ashley: we'll see how it works out. maybe get the debt ceiling dealt with and really get to the heart of the spending cuts that need to be put in place. tracy: we'll be playing groundhog day. ashley: that's true. ask rich edson. saving the best for last, morgan stanley surges after putting a close on this week's bank results. tracy: georgia, other states are helping offices in california to lure businesses to relocate. it sounds so sneaky. we'll find out what they're doing. let's check out oil is trading as we head out to break. it is pretty much flat. $95.52 a
, somehow got behind the defense in overtime, peyton manning forces this pass and intercepted, and six plays later, and now, in double overtime the ravens kick a game winning 47 yard field goal to stun the broncos, 38- 38-35. and then from san francisco, 49ers qb, kaepernick, rushing, 181 yards and two touchdowns, and had the the game of his lifetime. those are your headlines. >> thank you very much. i would have had to have read that phonetically. >> kaepernick? >> yes, let's check with rick reichmuth. >> rick: the dangers of early morning tv, i fell asleep right at double overtime, i have no how it happened, but i woke up when the game was done, i was bummed. warm across the southeast, enjoy it, this is all about to change and once it goes away, it's gone for a long time. the cold air across the west will replace it and the warm air up to the west and that's going to be a bit of a change that's going to be happening, another very cold morning out to the west and factor in the wind and it's brutal out there. minus 17, and minus 24 in glasgow and a lot of cold air still there, but it's a slo
. >> sean: in the iraq war. and then, there is chuck haigel. nominee for defense secretary no. wonder this choice is being questioned. july, twun, he voted against extending sanctions on the country in 2007, voted against calling iranian revolutionary guard a terrorist group, recommended establishing a u.s. diplomatic mission in iran. and a nominee for treasury secretary, jack lu who falsely claimed obama budget would not add to debt. listen. >> i think it's an accurate statement our current spending will not be increasing the debt. >> sean: joining me now with her own opinions, how are you, ann coulter? good to see you. >> there is a major flu epidemic. >> jihad is legitimate. one person saying iranian revolutionary guard you can't say is a terror group. >> this is an old liberal trick. they retreat an argument burning english language as they go. we can't call them jihadists. we can't call it war on terrorism. of course, my principle objection to this list of nominees is that they're all white men, sean hannity. the lack of diversity just shocks me. shocks me. >> sean: what happened
department suppose today uphold defense of marriage act. we saw when obama unilaterally weekened welfare process, and pushed through his contraception mandate and learn that tomorrow when president obama announces his far reaching gun grab,'s going to do this while surrounded by a group of children, they say, wrote him after the newtown tragedy. this is the ultimate example of exploiting and politicizing a tragedy. we're going to have much more coming up on our next block, but first, the first set of tighter gun laws already enacted here in new york as we bring in republican new york state senator greg ball along with state senator michael janrus. and what you said, a woman in georgia, and a guy breaks into the house with a crowbar, she goes up into the crawl space in the attic with her two twins. the guy goes up there, she happened to hit him with five shots, all she had in the gun, five. what if there were two guys, he walked out of that house. and andrew cuomo, he has security. president obama has security. hollywood stars have security. our money and banks have security. how do you s

-qaeda and saddam hussein. one of the most surprising things to me was there was a defense intelligence agency report, a classified report that came out in 2002 that specifically said our intelligence on weapons of mass destruction is terrible. we can't establish any of the things that we're saying to the public. and i quote from that document pretty extensively. and so that, that was, um,ty tushing on the level -- disturbing on the level of it really did seem like b if something, the preconception, it was accepted. if something didn't, it was tossed aside. and clearly the people who were doing the good work were the ones who were saying there was nothing there. >> host: how do you research a book like this? >> guest: um, you willingly subject yourself to a great amount of agony. the reporting on this started in 2006, and, you know, here we are 2012. when i started, i really thought i was doing a book about the eight years of the bush administration. and after many hundreds of hours of interviews, i realized that, um, i could write, you know, ten volumes on that and really the heart of the sto
's a legitimate topic that should be under discussion. i think there is a lot of room in the defense budget for cuts, but our primary focus in terms of the economy should be job creation. so that means that the government has to spend in order to create economic stability. economic progress. we need jobs in this economy for middle class people and that's what will make this economy stronger and so if we cut then we're going against that very basic economic principle. when you constrict the budget and cut off the flow of money, you're not going have as many jobs available. so i am not -- i am not in favor of drastic cuts in spending at this time, but i do think long term we should be looking at reducing our debt and restoring fiscal sanity to our budget. >> a group of house democrats, yourself included you want to do away with the debt ceiling law altogether. this is congressman jerry neven, this is what he had to say about it. take a listen. >> it is time to repeal the debt ceiling and today we're introducing legislation to do just that. instead of playing a game of chicken with the full fa
's not a cleared-out space. they could find things as they go through. let's listen to the defense secretary, leon panetta. he said it very well this afternoon. >> with regards to the numbers of americans, we are still trying to get accurate information about just exactly how many americans were located there and exactly what happened to them. >> and so that is really the key. everyone who had people in that location, at that plant, is trying right now. those countries are trying to find out exactly what happened to every single person who was involved. don, we -- at this point, we believe that -- we know that there was one american who was killed, and that six were either freed or escaped. but there could be others who were still unaccounted for. we have not heard from the white house yet. we haven't heard from the state department. so there may be still an evaluation going on. don? >> jill dougherty, thank you very much. >>> excitement is building in our nation's capital, ahead of the president's inauguration. on the national mall, let's take a look now. we're now across the city, people are wai
